It took me all of 5 seconds to Google "Simapa Chapala" and come up with https://www.simapa.gob.mx/

Thanks. I googled that and there is an email to send for your receipt for your payment on line but iI could not find an option to look up what is due for 2024. 😕

You have to phone in to find out what the amount is for 2024... then you can proceed to the next stage. Honestly, I find it easier to walk in and out in 15 minutes with my paid receipt in hand.
I am also going to pay my house taxes and car tax the same way. Take the old one in, pay and walk out with receipt. Not totally happy with the online experience here.

That’s what we do but it’s like a box of chocolates. Never know how many pesos to take. Just take more!!

I wish it only took 15 minutes in and out to pay my predial here in Bahia de Banderas. There is only one place to pay it, they have never gotten their website properly functional- you have to go to the Soriana complex in Bucerias, where they have a window in the lobby area, at 7:30 am, get a number, and wait for hours for your turn.
It isn't worth it to me to pay in January for the 60-70 peso discount I'd get, so I just pay in Feb. when there's no line-up.

It's worked out pretty well if I take 10% more but it's usually less than that. I most definitely don't pay online for house taxes because I want to see the bill first... it's very interesting how the size of my house changes from year to year when I haven't done anything. Once you've paid online, it's almost impossible to get the money back. However, you can question an increase in size on the spot and they will adjust accordingly on the spot.
Mudgirl, yes, it was always a p.i.t.a. to pay the predial in Nayarit... they kept changing locations on a regular basis. I believe that the discount here is the same for both January and February. No brainer to wait until Feb.

Both the Chapala Predial office and the SIMAPA office in Ajijic take my US credit card.  Last year (the first time I tried to use my cc for the water bill), SIMAPA added 3% to it, but that add-on seems to have been successfully challenged here....even El Torito has stopped adding a surcharge after years of doing so.  The Predial office hasn't had a surcharge since I started charging it a few years ago.  

On the car tax, I prefer on-line as the parking near the office in Chapala can be difficult.

For the office on Degollado (car tax), I turn right at the lights in Chapala and follow the boardwalk and turn left onto the street that runs parallel to Parque Cristiania. Go up to the bottom of Degollado, park (LOTS of parking) adjacent to the park and walk the half block to the office.

"Mudgirl, yes, it was always a p.i.t.a. to pay the predial in Nayarit... they kept changing locations on a regular basis."

Exactly. We used to pay it at an office in Bucerias down near the beach. Then about 8 years ago they had a small office in Sayulita. That lasted for about 2 years. Then you could pay it at the water office in Sayulita- that happened only one year. 2 years ago there was the line-up at Soriana, but also an office at the north end of Bucerias. The last year, only the Soriana location. Who knows for this year.

Pay with a debit card or via money transfer and this way you do not have to know how much you have to bring.
